As this tutorial notes, trying to figure out where you are and where you are going is one of man’s oldest pastimes. But thanks to the U.S. Department of Defense and the advent of the Global Positioning System, all of us have access to advanced tools for navigation and positioning.
These tools are available from sophisticated to simple versions with various degrees of accuracy.
For general real estate work, an inexpensive GPS receiver can be very useful to approximately locate the boundaries of a remote parcel. If you would like additional information, please contact me.
In a related story, this ambitious project will send GPS users to all corners of the world.
